It's no required, just would make a few things easier. The pull is
additional to mailinglist patches, so send patches as usual.  If you put
the patches to a branch that I can pull, I'll do that eventually. This
happens if the patches are in a state that I don't need to touch them at
all or do just minor modifications.

Basically yes. Single patches or very short series do not need to go
through git (just mails).

As the devel branch could be rebased, it's not suitable as a starting
point. Even if you rebase it, I might not be able to pull it if
something changes in the meantime. As I don't process progs patches
every day, this is likely to happen.

If you don't want to do the git way now, no big deal. It's a long term
goal, but this requires to do the things right, so both parties,
develoeprs and maintainers, know what to expect and get it. I'll also
write that to wiki for future reference.
